About the Campaign
Plants and animals that share our ecosystem are important for our health and the well‑being of our environment. They affect the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the overall quality of life that we lead. The extinction of one species or introduction of another can effect or even unbalance the ecosystem.
Over the past few years “Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi” has been surveying plants and animals across the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The information gathered helps us to better account for, plan, preserve and manage Abu Dhabi’s biodiversity.
We are glad to invite you to participate in this survey. Wherever you live or travel in Abu Dhabi, report on plants or animals that you may spot, especially if they look unusual to you. You don’t have to know what they are called; all you need to do is send a photo and our experts can identify them, you might even come across a species that is new to science.
Simply download “Collector for ArcGIS” smart phone free app. Run the app on your smart phone. The one time login (username: EADECO, password: abudhabi) and you are ready to start your adventure.
